[ANN] Improved Appveyor scripts


#1

I have created some improved Appveyor scripts to make it easier to use, and hopefully make it more robust. Please see

As always, feedback would be greatly appreciated.


Appveyor magic changed?
#2

Is there a way to set only the nightly to not run 32-bit tests? I like to run 32-bit on versions which are supposed to pass and set allow failure for nightly, and not run 32-bit nightly just to cut back on the CI load.


#3

I think the following should work:

matrix:
  allow_failures:
    - platform: x64
      julia_version: latest
  exclude:
    - platform: x86
      julia_version: latest

Based on https://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-configuration/#exclude-configuration-from-the-matrix

This is great and everyone should switch to it imo. No need for @staticfloat to make PRs to every julia repo in existence as soon as a URL change heh.
